The Global Archipelago

Every Wave House is an island of surf, fun, music, sun, things to eat and drink and world class shopping. The Wave House archipelago is like an island chain in the Pacific: heated up and increasing, year by year.

At the center of every Wave House is the wave-riding experience. Whether it’s beginners getting their feet wet for the first time or some of the world’s best board athletes bustin’ airs, we’ve got a break that suits you on our FlowBarrel® or SurfPool™. Wave House brings the ocean experience to everybody, across the USA and around the world.

Dotted around the world are dozens of locations, islets of water parks, cruise ships, shopping malls and other installations which feature some kind of  Wave Loch or Surf Loch surfing wave technology. From the Northern extremes of Experium in Sweden to the ocean bound Oasis of the Seas or the very real oases of Wild Wadi in Dubai and Wahoo water park in Bahrain, our extended family covers the planet.

Wave House San Diego (USA)

WHSD-venue_1000pxWave House San Diego was the original iconic flagship for the Wave House lifestyle and the source of new ideas and innovations.

In 2004, Wave Loch founder Tom Lochtefeld invested $4 million of his own money, borrowed another $4 million and put in a lot of sweat equity to restore the 18-acre, 70-year-old Belmont Park to its historic luster. He invested another $5 million and made a home for the FlowBarrel Bruticus Maximus – which had toured Europe and the world on the SWATCH Wave Tour. The Bruticus took center stage and around that they built bars, restaurants, music stages and a lifestyle: sand under foot, sun and stars above.

It was one of the most popular beach party venues in San Diego and California. This is the fun lifestyle Wave House is exporting to the world.


Wave House Santiago (Chile)

venues-santiago“Olas buenas” means “good waves” in Spanish, and that is an expression you hear often in Chile. This South American country has more than 2,600 miles of coastline, and there are perfect waves from north to south.

In 2010 there was suddenly a perfect wave in the middle, with the opening of Wave House Santiago at Mall Sport, a 100,000 square foot retail complex dedicated to board sports in northeast Santiago. More than an hour from the ocean but the next best thing, Wave House Santiago included a FlowBarrel left that was “Buena ola”.

Santiago surfers who couldn’t get to the beach – and even a few coastal Chileans looking for a challenge – honed their skills and pushed the limits on The Future of Nature™ – 100,000 gallons of water flowing at 30 MPH – with the city’s best pizza place on the shoulder. “Que Buena!”

Wave House Sentosa (Singapore)

venues-sentosaThis island in the Wave House archipelago is actually an island – just south of Singapore. For centuries it was known as Pulau Blakang Mati – which meant “death from behind”. Not a good name for an island designed to accommodate tourists, so in 1972 the name was changed to Sentosa: meaning “peace in tranquility” in Malay.

Good call, although the peace and tranquility of this island of fun was rattled a bit when Wave House Sentosa cranked things up to an 11 in 2009. There’s a FlowBarrel® left and a double FlowRider® at the center of a music, entertainment and retail complex in a place that has been blessed by nature: beautiful beaches, tropical sun, palm trees, spectacular sunsets and azure water.

All that was missing was waves, but the people of Singapore are in for a treat when they get a taste of The Future of Nature™.

Wave House Mallorca (Spain)

wavehouse_mallorcaOur first Wave House Hotel opened in the summer of 2012, spicing up the Mallorca party scene with a quintessential Mediterranean beach front venue, a Double FlowRider®, a FlowBarrel®, four bars and an al fresco restaurant. The 184 room all-suite hotel is now ranked in the top 10 in the Balearic islands. This venue encapsulated everything the Wave House lifestyle is all about!
